Milestone’s MotoGP series has always been a daunting creature to the fair-weather racers in the racing community. Bike racing sims, by nature, have always stood as outliers, watching from the shadows of the pit lane, teasing players with the promise of speed and sound while still keeping them at arm’s length with a punishingly steep learning curve. So steep in fact, that is enough to put many a player off for life after just one miserable jaunt around a track. Fortunately for those who may have suffered the aforementioned abuse or even those who have been on the fence about the series for the longest time (myself included) MotoGP 2021 is the perfect point of entry and is by far the most fun you can have on two wheels this year.
For veterans of the series, MotoGP 21 may not be the massive leap forward that they were expecting, as seems to be the case with many yearly sports titles this year. A few minor graphical updates are present, but it’s pretty much business as usual. There is a definite improvement on the PS5 version of the game particularly with load times quicker than Marc Marquez on a Saturday afternoon. It’s by no means the ugly stepchild, MotoGP 21 shines across the board, with exceptional dynamic weather effects and brilliant lighting, you’ll be hard pressed to tell the difference between it and the real thing. There is also a brilliant photo mode allowing you to capture the burning discs as you swing your rider into a tight corner.

Throughout the season you can catch up with your team, manage staff, improve components or research new ones...
One tablespoon Star Wars, a dollop of motorsport, a splash of Metal Gear. And a pinch of space magic. Mix and blend. Smashing! Is also running for congress.
